Frank Vogel Rumors
“We told all the candidates that Frank Vogel’s our coach,” Alex Martins said after the formal question-and-answer session. “That was probably the only non-negotiable, and that comes directly from ownership. Ownership believes that Frank hasn’t had a chance, that he was dealt a short deck, so to speak, in terms of the overall complete roster and that he deserves a chance with the right administration and the right roster movement to be able to prove what he’s done in the past, and that is to be successful.”
Out of the postseason following a highly disappointing 29-53 first season with the Magic, Vogel said the failures over the past seven months will drive him throughout what figures to be a busy offseason. “I do believe in balance in life and I do want to get away from it and let it go a little bit, but it’s going to sit with me all summer,’’ Vogel said candidly last week upon the Magic’s season wrapping up. “When I get back to work, I’m going to be very driven to do all of this studying and evaluation of our team to get this thing back going the right direction.’’
There has been talk of something of a Frank Vogel reunion with former Pacer executive David Morway being linked to the Magic. Morway was last with the Milwaukee Bucks before exploring the Sacramento Kings front office. It’s believed Morway was well on his way to being the Kings president before the team shifted course and went with Vlade Divac. Morway is a long-time veteran executive, which suits the Magic’s desire for a top-down leader.
